This film is the true story of friendship that forever changed mathematics. In 1913, Srinivasa Ramanujan—a self-taught Indian mathematics genius—traveled to Trinity College, Cambridge. Over the course of five years, he forged a bond with his mentor, the brilliant and eccentric G.H. Hardy, and fought against prejudice to reveal his mathematic genius to the world. Two distinguished mathematicians co-produced the film: Manuel Bhargava, a Fields Medalist, and Ken Ono, a Guggenheim Fellow. This screening is sponsored by the Department of Mathematics, the Dhar India Studies Program, and IU Cinema. A panel discussion with IU scholars will follow the screening. (2K DCP Presentation)
